I put my only Korpiklaani album that I got for my birthday a bunch of years ago up for trade somewhere a while ago. Gonna see if I can trade it with some kid who might want it.

Who knows, maybe I'll get something.

Terrible music....beer metal for teenage delinquents

Oh, seriously? How lame of you, dude.
I am a teenager but I HATE beer. So what? Should that prevent me from liking Korpiklaani?

Quote:


Of course not, Im not telling anyone what to listen to or not, go for it I just think they totally are not good at all

Quote:

...although some of their songs and records are actually totally crappy. ..


See, you understand my point afterall.

Quote:

However, insulting us Korpiklaani fans and talking/writing all that kind of crap about the band itself is lame.


I think youve been on this site long enough to know that you have to be somewhat thick-skinned because most people who dont like a certain band will say it lol. I just find this band utterly unlistenable with terrible lyrics and dumb/predictable songs.

Similarly many people dont like the music I like, but at least like some people on here I dont hound every single thread about a specific band that I dont like only to write as much bad shit about them as I possibly can So I suppose if I was, say, Bittercold, you could expect a much bigger onslaught all the time about a band you like and he dislikes. So consider yourself lucky I suppose..

I don't consider myself to be lucky in this case. I'd have rather debated with BitterCOld on that one instead of you, delinquent.

Listen to whatever the fuck you want, I'm not the one to judge you about your music taste. Just stop calling every single Korpiklaani fan a "teenage delinquent" and cut off the rest of that shit. This way, everything's gonna be perfectly fine. Got it?

I find that offensive and very unintelligent


Surely not as unintelligent as Krapiklaani's garbage.

Believe me, the teenage delinquents where I live listen to far worse music than Korpiklaani. And they drink buckfast, not beer.

lol That way everything is gonna be perfectly fine? I thought everything is fine....you do realize you commented on something I wrote over a year ago right? The sooner you get over it, the sooner everything will be fine.

They put on fun shows, that's for sure. But I don't think I am alone in thinking that they've released the same album 5 times. If I am, I shouldn't be. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the ol Korpiklaani formula is in need of some tuning. They bore me.

Korpiklaani are not the kind of band to be taken seriously at all. They just make music for mug-swinging parties, which are ten times cooler than normal parties.

The things I don't like about them though only allow me to listen to the band in short bursts, such as the on average poor production and GOD.AWFUL guitar riffs in most of their songs which just sound pointlessly generic. But every now and then I can forget about those things and enjoy them for what they are : dumb, fun beer metal.

I think Korpiklaani are great. Sure, they're silly and repeat themselves but they can still make a catchy tune, and if i'm in the mood it's fun listening.

I do start to wonder, do these guys still have fun doing the same stuff over and over again? Or do some members want to experiment more? I really miss their Shaman period. Would be awesome if they make more albums in that Shaman style.

I dig the Shaman-era stuff as well, and I really would like to hear Jonne incorporate more yoik into the music like on the earlier albums. That said, I think Ukon Wacka is pretty good. Anyone else notice that the bass/bottom-end sound seems more prominent on this one?

LIke most, if not all folk metal, its fun to listen to once in a while, but nothing worth frequently listening to. And yes, I am a teenage delinquent

That is actually a pretty good question. They may have got tired of doing the same stuff but if that's what earns them money... Y'know how it's like. Else, I miss their Shaman era, too. Old Korpiklaani albums have a totally different spirit and also are way more decent.

Well they do have their side projects. If I remember correctly, Hittavainen was in a project similar to Shaman.

Since BitterCold suggested it, I'm posting my video here in this thread .. so as previuosly mentioned, I am a sports teacher in Austria and I made a music video project with some of my kids from school using Korpiklaani songs.



Terrorizer Magazine also wrote a short article about it on their website

I'd love to hear some feedback
